These Terms and Conditions govern your use of the Faceifi service (the "Service") which can be accessed via our website at www.faceifi.com (the “Website”) or by downloading our mobile application (the "App"). Please read there Terms and Conditions carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions please do not use the Service. If you have any questions about these Terms and Conditions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Service is intended for use by those who are eighteen (18) years or older. Accordingly, you must be eighteen (18) years of age or older to use the Service and to create an Account. By registering with use and creating an Account you represent that you are over eighteen and have legal capacity to agree to these Terms and Conditions.
The Service is operated by Faceifi Limited a limited company registered in England and Wales under company number 08360333 with its registered office at Spaceworks, Benton Park Road, Newcastle, England, NE7 7LX. Please contact us by sending an email to email@example.com.
The Service enables a person (a "User") to register with us and to create an account (an "Account"). A User can then upload images of their face to create a facial profile ("Facial Profile") and they can associate their Facial Profile with a chosen URL. Users can also create groups ("Groups") linked to their Facial Profile and they can invite other Users of the Service to link their Facial Profiles to that Group.
The service also enables Users to upload images of other people to see whether the Service recognises them as a registered User of the Service ("Search"). When a User carries out a Search the Service will return a list of possible matches for the image they have uploaded as well as details of any associated URLs and Groups.
By Creating an Account and a Facial Profile you are agreeing that we may use your information, including information concerning your Facial Profile, in the ways described above and in section 3 below.
Full details of the Service will be published on our Website from time to time. We are continually seeking to develop and improve the Service we offer and so we reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to make changes to any part of the Service without notice.
You can create an Account by visiting our Website or downloading the App and by following the instructions given there.
You must ensure that the information provided on registering with us is correct, complete and not misleading. You should inform us promptly of any changes to the information provided, by updating your Account details, so we can communicate with you effectively.
If you register to use the Service via the Website you will be allocated a username and password or you may access the services using your Twitter or Facebook account details (“ID”). You must not permit anybody else to use your ID to access or use the Services and you will be responsible for all use of the Service using your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID you must notify us immediately by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we reasonably believe that your ID is being used in any way which is not permitted by these Terms and Conditions, we reserve the right to suspend access rights immediately on giving notice to you and to block access from your ID until the issue has been resolved.
We may create and reserve profiles for individuals we deem to public figures in order to protect those accounts from imitation and to hold the relevant username until such a time that they are claimed by those individuals. In such instances, public figure accounts will lead Faceifi users who find them in results to third party websites that contain publicly available information relating to that public figure, the content of which we take no responsibility for nor have any affiliation with. Public figures can claim these reserved usernames and accounts free of charge by emailing email@example.com or with a request sent by direct message to the Faceifi Twitter account (@Faceifi). Until such time that these accounts are claimed, they will be displayed as "reserved, pending verification" to all Faceifi users.
If you create an Account and a Facial Profile you understand and agree that other Users of the Service will be able to view your Facial Profile as well as details of any associated URLs or Groups. In particular, you understand and agree that details of your Facial Profile may be returned as a possible match for Searches which have been carried out by other Users of the Service and that other Users may seek to use the Service to identify you from images in their possession. Whilst we ask all Users to use the Service responsibly and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, we have no control over, and shall not be responsible for, the manner in which, or the purposes of which, other Users may use the Service.
If you use the Service you also understand and agree that the Service's Search feature is not 100% accurate and is only capable of suggesting Users who may be a possible match for a Search. Search results will give an indication of the likelihood of any possible matches identified but this is approximate only. Accordingly, you should not rely on the Service as a means of accurately identifying anybody from an image. You also understand and agree that your Facial Profile may be returned as a possible match for a Search against images of other people. As the searcher you understand and agree that the image used to identify a resulting profile will be made visible to the owner of that profile. The owner of that profile will be informed via email that they have been found using the service. You understand and agree that we do not guarantee the accuracy of any Search results and will not be responsible for any consequences which may follow from any person using the service to falsely identify another person from an image in their possession.
If you create an Account or Facial Profile you must ensure that the information and images provided relate to you and that they are not misleading. You must not create an Account or Facial Profile for any other person or using information or images which relate to some other person (a "Bogus Account"). When creating an Account or Facial Profile or using the Service, you must not conceal you true identity or impersonate any other person.
If we believe that you have created a Bogus Account, or that you have attempted to do so, we reserve the right (in our absolute discretion) to require that you provide verification of your identity and/ or to suspend or disable or terminate your Account of Facial Profile with or without prior notice to you.
If you believe a Bogus Account may have been created by a User of this Service please contact us immediately by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Code of Conduct applies to all Users of the Service and any Account or Facial Profile created using the Service.
